Jan sotm

Happy new year. We have a brand new stamp of the month blog hop for you.    {Teresa Scrivens} is where you should be coming from.  Next in this hop is {Connie Walsh}.  For the whole list  visit {Here}

I had a family emergency and  I can't find my stamp even to make something.  I finally found it, and quickly made it.  So there are mistakes but my crafting ability is nonexistent at this moment.

This is a 3 x 3 card.  I think these are so cute for valentines day and quick to make.  Even you little ones would be able to make one.  The heart on the stamp are actually a banner, but I thought making my own banner would be cute.  Everything is stamped with pigment ink, which is why the one heart is smudged.  

To get your own stamp set and other items to make this card, visit nikkageers.ctmh.com

Sotm jan - happy valentine's

Sorry.  I am updating my blog to include Pinterest buttons and for some reason this one changed to a recent post. This post was actaully from jan 2012. This stamp set will not be available.   

Welcome to this months sotm blog hop. You should be coming her from{Beth Naumann}.   Next in the hop is {Mary Eisen}.

there is not much to say about this. I used La Belle Vie for the paper.  I did my first time coloring with the new alcohol markers. I think I did the coloring backwards tho.   And btw, I hate hand cutting.  I cut the flower and the sentiment.  This is why I have a cricut, so I don't have to hand cut. The card design can be found it "make it from the heart". 

Thanks for joining me. Next in the hop is {Mary Eisen}

It's a birthday

My mom's birthday is coming up and I made her a card. I got the layout from Pinterest.

I do want to show you a trick that I use. i sometimes leave some sort of border when making cards with pattern paper. I think it just adds a little something and makes it look better. I took pictures of both way. One without a border and one with. I meant to use a smaller border around the card, but oops.

I am still running the mystery hostess party until dec 4th, so you have a couple days left. For every $100 you spend, not only will you get a free star item from Close To My Heart, you will also get a chance to win your choice of item for half off. You could get one of our cricut cartridges for onl $49.99. You will need to place your order under they mystery hostess gathering at nikkageers.ctmh.com
